It was not, as originally hoped, a home birth. After 40 hours of labor, Krissy desperately needed something for the pain, and so it wound up being a hospital birth after a 49-hour labor. However, no C-section was required or applied, and the hospital staff were remarkably accommodating. We recommend Santa Clara Valley Medical Center without reservation. An added bonus: it's acronym is SCVMC, which looks like somebody wrote "SCUM-C" on a bank in cheesy roman font.
There will likely be more details later on the baby filter, for those who want to know.
